Defective fuel pumps seem to be a recurring theme in recent vehicle recalls, and it is no different from the one Honda has just issued. Over 10,000 cars are affected this time, including some 90 Civic Type Rs. Now, it isn’t clear if this includes the units covered by the automaker’s previous recall notice, but it’s safe to say that customers had better check if their units are included.
